May I suggest you add his details - name and unit - to your heading. Then more people are likely to look.

Have a look at the long long trail. It'll give you you plenty of advice on researching individual soldiers.

if your quick, you.can use Ancestry and Find My Past this weekend free of charge. They will probably have his medal roll entry, pension details and if you're lucky maybe his service record survived.

What do you already know, and what information are you hoping to find out?

 

He has a MIC on Ancestry that you can download for free, but it is not findable under KOSB 202329.

FMP have his previous Scottish Rifles number of 291153, which can be used on Ancestry to find his card.

Ancestry have 'helpfully' mis transcribed KOSB as' King's Own Yorkshire Light Infanty'.
